So there was a remix contest for Matt Lange feat. Jeza "I can't Forgive" on Anjunadeep, here's my submission
This isn't a WIP as a "how am I doing as a producer" kind of thing...also, this was a very rushed release, so its a lot of samples, presets, and even pre-made MIDI, so I'm wondering how I'm doing in terms of how it sounds and how my song structuring is going, and less on my actual....musicality? for lack of a better word.
I think you've got to take a listen to some more anjunadeep stuff - anjunadeep one and two are quite frankly classics of the genre and showcase the most unbelievably produced, melodic tracks.
My advice is to really listen to the vocal sample that is provided, that gives clues about the musical direction.
your bass and padds are out of key with each other - try pitching the bass down by 9 (or up by 3)
the percussion programming is rather sparse, needs more variation.
Musically, this is all over the place mate - I'm not being harsh, just suggesting some music practice or maybe some piano lessons.
That said I really like the bit at 4:40 to about 4:50 - you could bass a track around this.
sorry to not be more positive
